 Assassins is underrated. I'll watch it anytime. Sadly, I've never gotten to watch any of the Expendables franchise.

 

 

 The Expendables series is really good...  The three-film collection is available on blu-ray for pretty cheap on Amazon.

I'm willing to give money to just about anything with Dolph Lundgren in it (almost anything), but I just saw the third movie has Ronda Rousey in it... really not a fan, don't have it in me to give her a possible royalty check. Guess I'll wait for it to be run on TV sometime.

I met Danny Trejo once, at Border's.

 

I did NOT expect him to be a goofball!

 

I did not realize he is 77 years old. He was in his 50s when he made Desperado. That man aged very well.

Headline I just saw:

'US submarine strikes unknown object in South China sea'

 

Now, I haven't read the story yet, but the very first thing that came to mind was 'great,  they just hit C'thulu'.

So that same submarine was just reported on for having a bed bug infestation that's been going on for well over a year. 

My first thought was "how are these two things related?"

round two of Rob vs the brandy Snap.  First round didnt last long enough to test how long they last filled.  this round I thought i would try to mix blueberry pulp with whipped cream.  this did not go as planned.  the cream did not get to a piping consistency.  Had to go back to brandy in whipped cream. 

 

Still working on the snap recipe its an interesting little cookie? with a hint of ginger heat in the sweet and it surrounds piped (unsweetened) whipped cream.  the effect is addictive to say the least.

People don't believe our "Exit 35mph signs" on the hairpin turns either. That's less funny. 

 

 

It's very possible.  I run an assembly line system with figures constantly in various stages of progress, from prepped (being washed or glued), primed, being painted, or spay finished.  Last night I prepped some figures, this morning I dull coated some finished figs to take to today's  game, tomorrow I need to get some stuff primed and work on in-progress painting.   If you can spare 30 minutes a day to prep and prime, you can paint loads during the weekend.  

Assembly line works really well for me. Prime a bunch, put down undercoats of skin and metallics, and then work on other colors, slowly building up and giving myself a chance to work on a bit at a time. I usually finish with the final skin layer.

 Well, she's not in the first two, lol.
